Tennis player Andy Murray won Olympic gold (and revenge!) Sunday when he unseated world champion, Roger Federer, who beat him at Wimbledon last month.

After four losses (three to Federer) in the Grand Slam finals, Murray surprised spectators when he defeated Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 to win the men's single finals at the Summer Games.

"The atmosphere was unbelievable," Murray, who is Scottish, said of the crown in London. "They helped me get a few extra miles an hour on the last couple of serves, that's for sure. The adrenaline was pumping. I went for some big serves and got them. To be fair the whole week they've been amazing."

Federer won the silver medal for Switzerland while Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina was awarded bronze.
